Jesus said, “All who want to come after me must . . . take up their cross, and follow me.” - Matthew 16:24 (CEB)
Jesus invites us to follow him. But I would much rather believe than follow; it’s easier. I can sit in the comfort of my study and believe all sorts of things: the Virgin Birth, walking on water, feeding the 5,000, the Crucifixion and Resurrection. No problem! I have no trouble...
How do my actions show others that I am following Christ?

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
